WAYCROSS, Ga.-- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into a police-involved shooting that happened in Waycross Thursday afternoon.
The victim's family said officeres shot the wrong man.
"Just disbelief. Petrified and frustrated," said Latreace Cannady.
Cannady said Waycross Police came to her apartment looking for her brother.
When she gave them permission to search her house, she said they went upstairs and shot the wrong man.
"They didn't ask no questions. They just went upstairs and shot, boom," she said.
Cannady's brother-in-law, Andrew Poole, was sleeping in his bedroom when police came to the door. Cannady said she didn't hear a struggle or an argument, but she did hear the gunshot.
"They shot my brother-in-law, for no apparent reason. He doesn't smoke or drink. He's not a criminal," she said.
According to Waycross PD the shooting happened at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, and GBI was on the scene by 2 p.m.
"The only thing we can tell you is that we are still processing the scene. We're still interviewing witnesses. The victim is currently receiving medical attention," said GBI Special Agent in Charge Russell Mansfield.
Mansfield would not confirm the extent of his injuries, but Andrew Poole's family said he was shot in the stomach and is in stable condition.
At this point GBI is not releasing the name of the officer who shot him or the circumstances of the shooting.
"I can't confirm or deny anything involving the investigation," said Mansfield.
Mansfield did say they came to the scene at the request of Waycross PD. The chief of that department referred any questions to GBI.
"I hope they feel some sort of remorse, that they got a conscience on their mind and they feel bad about it," said Cannady.
GBI said they will release more on their investigation Friday.

and the deputy guy who tased the man 2 times in dothan. and then 3 or 4 dothan cops show up the man that was tased we were told he died. how many cops does it take to take a man in custody? and maybe live to go to court. this is almost like the 33 year old headland man that headland cop shot and we hear he was unarmed we read on the web site.send barny 5 and andy mayberry maybe next time. i think 2 of 3 three were black so just make up your mindss maybe whos next.

have been talking we just have heard and this shooting of a black unarmed man by a cop. maybe look at by other people way on up in washington so maybe the family will get justice maybe after all .this should not had happened the cop we hear first on the scene was a bigger man why did this cop not just able to control a smaller man. and why not use his tazer was this cop black or white tell us all. why shoot a good man that should had been took to the hospital for his meds. not for getting shot and then dies.and we hear the shooting was justified by the d a.
